As Burberry redesigned its classic checkered plaid to support the LGBTQ+ community, the Burberry Spring 2018 runway show is just as progressive and equality-oriented.
This year's Ready-to-Wear line-up is a milestone for a few distinct events. First, of course, is the openness to expressiveness, diversity and individualism that the fashion designs celebrate with flowy boxy cuts, statement pieces and excessively colorful silhouettes. Secondly, the couture runway marks designer Christopher Bailey's "grand finale of his 17 years at Burberry." The show was an autobiographical collection— a"symbolic revisiting of the place of his first fashion awakening," dominated by DIY teen-tribe patterns and 80s-90s British street culture. And thirdly, Cara Delevingne triumphantly resurfaced on the high fashion runway with a rainbow-colored floor-length cloak.
